Chris Bosh

Forward, Miami Heat

On keeping up with his 'mates: "My personal style is dressy but loose. I will say, I look to D-Wade and LeBron. They have great personal style, and they pay attention to detail. I am always looking at their belts and scarves. Every game is like a fashion show."

C.J. Wilson

Pitcher, Texas Rangers

On dating swimsuit model Dominique Piek: "There's a little bit of pressure there, especially with how I do my hair. I don't want to look crappy sitting next to her. She understands my taste and takes me up a notch. As long as I don't look like I'm homeless, I think I'm okay."

Steve Johnson

Wide Receiver, Buffalo Bills

On making an entrance into the locker room: "I'm from San ­Francisco, and on the West Coast, style is different. I come in with my skinny jeans, wallet chain, hat with a flipped brim, different colors, and guys are like, 'Dude, what are you wearing?' I take it as a compliment."

Sean Avery

Left Wing, New York Rangers

On his Yeezy-ness: "I've wanted this Lanvin leather-sleeve jacket for months. Every time I go to look at the jacket, it's never available because Kanye West has it. That's happened five or six times, where there was a certain article of clothing I wanted to look at in my size and the store tells me, 'It's on loan,' and I say, 'Let me guess, Kanye has it?' "

Ian Poulter

Golfer; Founder of IJP Design clothing line

On the importance of looking crisp on the links: "The old-school guys -- Arnie, Jack, Gary Player, Doug Sanders -- they had style. Tiger Woods, I don't think he looks good on the golf course. He's got an incredible physique. I think he needs to show it off more."
